“We know that the city of Milwaukee itself is a hidden gem in our country so we wanted to create a newscast that highlights all of the diverse people and places that make it the amazing city that it is,” said TMJ4 News Director, Tim Vetscher. “Our community has been through such challenging times and we produce plenty of other newscasts to focus on the tough stories going on around us. ‘Milwaukee Tonight’ will celebrate the city we love.”

The show is part of a greater effort by TMJ4 News to provide a platform for diverse voices, positive stories and unique perspectives in southeast Wisconsin. The program premieres Monday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. and will air each weeknight. It replaces the current newscast, “TMJ4 Now.”
